Wild Rice and Chicken Breasts

1 1/3 cups uncooked wild rice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp. sun dried tomatoes, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh basil leaves, chopped

Cook wild rice according to How to Cook Wild Rice above. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn into a shallow buttered casserole.

In heavy skillet, heat the oil. Add the chicken and saute over medium heat until just cooked through and browned. Remove chicken breasts and arrange over the bed of wild rice in the casserole.

Add the cream to the skillet the chicken was cooked in. Bring to a boil, stirring to bring all of the brownings into the cream. Add the chopped sun dried tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts. Cover and bake at 350 F just until heated through, about 20 to 30 minutes. Garnish with the fresh basil leaves and serve hot. Serves 6
